Kirk: no Christian revolution?

Friday, August 3, 2012
    [Christ Jesus] came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.
    —Ephesians 2:17 (NIV)
    There is never a “Christian revolution”. Our task is not to set up Christian states or societies, but to humanize the secular order... The coming of the Kingdom confronts Christianity and society with the dynamic principle of a society always reforming. If revolution means “change of relationships”, “new life”, “new men”, etc., these are clearly Christian concepts.
    ... David Kirk (1935-2007), Quotations from Chairman Jesus, Springfield, Ill.: Templegate Publishers, 1969, p. 53 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, enable Your people to speak Your peace to the world.
